.Maeght Foundation - Architecture

Josep-Lluis Sert Architect of the Maeght Foundation

These large white concrete sails have two functions, to collect rainwater for the pools of Miró's "Labyrinth" and to shelter the buildings from the sun.
The intelligence of the timeless architecture of Josep Lluis Sert which combines beauty and utility and who perfectly knew how to integrate the buildings with the vegetation of this hill of Saint-Paul-de-Vence while putting himself at the service of artists and visitors .
A mixture of materials, shapes and colors, the architecture of the Foundation creates a feeling of perfect balance even though nothing is symmetrical.
The choices of my grandparents, by bringing together opposing trends in art, built harmony.
Marguerite and Aimé Maeght are instinctively ahead of their time and have only one desire: to lead as many people as possible with them on the paths of creation. Making the most diverse movements, eras and expressions vibrate together is their pleasure and, with the generosity that characterizes them, they offer everyone the opportunity to participate in this happiness.
The Foundation is without time or rather of all times, an architectural, artistic and human success.

Every detail of the architecture of the Maeght Foundation is remarkable.

Intelligence in light management at the Maeght Foundation, the screens of the "Town Hall Room" which allow the brightness to be maintained without fear of the sun on the works.
